Resident Evil 7 Announced – Has First Person Viewpoint


Capcom has revealed the next installment of Resident Evil, which will be in a first-person perspective.

Capcom, during Sony’s E3 press conference, revealed the latest installment of its Resident Evil franchise: Resident Evil 7. RE:7 will be doing things a bit differently from its predecessors, namely, it will have full VR support (via PlayStation VR) and be in a first-person, rather than the traditional third-person, perspective.

“In the classic Resident Evil games of yesteryear, players braced for fear in the first-person via the creepy door-opening scenes, and Resident Evil 7 ramps up that tension with an immersive first-person view and a photorealistic graphical style,” said Capcom in a press release.

If you’re interested, you can go ahead and download a free demo of the PS4 version of the game, which is available right now! The demo contains the first hour of play, but is only available to PlayStation Plus members.

Resident Evil 7 is set after the events of Resident Evil 6, taking place in modern day and revolving around a foreboding, derelict plantation mansion in rural America.

While the game will only support VR on the PS4, it will still be released for the Xbox One and PC. It’s currently slated for a January 24, 2017 release date.
